In this work, a three dimensional computer animation system has been designed to be employed in schools, for the training of art students on basic three dimensional animation techniques. Puppet Theater, as we have called the system, utilizes the flexibility and effectiveness of the low-end hardware, namely IBM PC™ computers supported with Targa 16™ graphics board and gives special emphasis to user friendliness. It Is basically a software to design three dimensional objects and choreograph the object data in the computer's memory, before rendering the resulting scenery with shading methods. The system is the result of reflecting the recent advances in the field of computer graphics and pushing the potentials of the existing platform. Software is Implemented in C language, thus the code is transportable. A custom designed object oriented windowing system called WODNTW is used as the user Interface. This open windowing system supports pull-down menus, interactive buttons, scalable windows and other popular user interface elements.
